12/11/2011: "Telangana is a complicated issue. Creation of a separate state will not solve the problem. Solving one national issue should not create more problems. A solution acceptable to every one is being worked out. From the frying pan to the fire is not an appropriate solution to the national problem." 20/10/2011: "Telangana issue is from 1950. Because of various complications involved in the issue, immediate decision on Telangana is not possible." 6/10/2011: "Need to make a decision on Telangana soon.

Now the crucial " Sri Krishna Committee" report is out on Telangana. The whole country's focus has shifted to the Telangana issue once again. But for the people of Telangana, this has been a long drawn fight of 54 years. As a result of this fight, on December 9, 2009, Government Of India announced the formation of Telangana state after consulting all the political parties in AP. It also reiterated its promise in both houses of Parliament on Dec 11th and 12th of 2009. There was a stiff opposition within the Congress party to this, from the coastal MPs. The Congress party failed to control the opposition by their own MPs against Sonia Gandhi's decision, thus the Sri Krishna committee was formed. From day 1, i.e. right from the guide lines given to the committee (TOR) and the legal sanctity of the committee every thing was done....
